As of January 1, 2020, local jurisdictions in Colorado can “opt-in” to allowing Marijuana Hospitality Establishments. State law sets minimum requirements for these establishments; cities and counties “opting in” can strengthen their local laws to take steps to lessen potential impacts on public health and safety. Learn more about the new rules through an informational webinar and fact sheets; request technical assistance or consultation from the Center for Public Health Practice; and access relevant data through this page. New resources are being added, so check back!
This one-hour webinar will help you gain a better understanding of Colorado’s new state law allowing for the creation of Marijuana Hospitality Establishments (“tasting rooms” and "bring your own cannabis"). The new law allows local communities to opt in or out to allowing these establishments.
This fact sheet by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) provides a visual guide to House Bill 19-1230: Marijuana Hospitality Establishments.
In addition to this Fact Sheet on Hospitality Establishments, CDPHE has also created a fact sheet on Regulated Marijuana Delivery. Check it out if you are interested in seeing a visual guide on House Bill 19-1234.
Please complete this form to request consultation or policy assistance from the Center for Public Health Practice. The Center for Public Health Practice has legal and policy advisers available to answer questions and support public health and safety advocates as they work on local policies related to Marijuana Hospitality Rooms.
Many of us are working to create communities where everyone has an opportunity to be healthy. Public health is using policy, systems, and environmental change as a critical tool to improve equity and health outcomes. In this training course we will give you an overview of policy, systems and environmental change strategies, why they are important and how to get started.
Public health is using policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) change as a critical tool to improve equity and health outcomes. PSE changes focus on root causes and seek to create sustainable change by taking a population or systems-wide approach, rather than focusing solely on the individual.
To learn more about these pieces of the PSE process, the Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center has compiled this Suite of trainings. Find the ones that best meet your needs. The majority are offered online – some through interactive live learning events using bidirectional video; others are self-paced and available on-demand.
As the use of recreational marijuana has grown steadily across Colorado the risks of youth use have also increased. This suite of trainings will provide the tools to understand many aspects of recreational marijuana in the context of youth prevention. Trusted adults have been shown to be a major component of youth marijuana prevention. As such this training includes self-paced modules which outline strategies for having conversations with young people about marijuana use and its risks. The content available within this training suite also covers marijuana paraphernalia, methods of use, and common products. Participants will also find additional resources and training that have been curated for use in marijuana prevention work.
When California legalized cannabis through Proposition 64, the state left many of the details of cannabis policy to local jurisdictions. This project works with cities and counties, as well as other states, to provide guidance on adopting cannabis policies that reduce harms, protect against youth and problem cannabis use, and ensure social equity.
